Track Name: Get To The Room
How soon do you think she'll end up with you.

Pay up the dinner and get to the room.

Nobody told you it was gonna be easy.
Tonight you trust your sperm instincts.

Monday's a good day to check on her feelings.
Tonight you trust your sperm instincts.
Track Name: Wings Made of Wax
So she was flying, her wings made of wax
Who would've thought they're just not made to last
gave false impressions, a sense of false hope
her wings broke off sending her dreams up in smoke

fue predecir
como te vino
el porvenir

fue delicioso devorar tus

dime, cuando te vi
mirando al atardecer
guarda tus armas y encuentra
tu vivir, alegre y tranquila
alegre y tranquila

So she was flying, new wings made with love
each feather added by her friend, the mirror god
give me a grin, a wink and a nod,
you're free to choose where you feel you now belong
Track Name: Diez Años
Anoche sali contigo
Diez años fueron perdidos
Buscandote en mis viajes
Hallandote en mis sentidos

Buscadote, buscandote
Hallandote en mis sentidos
Track Name: Fairy Dust Mofo
When youre up, and you look around
Tell me whats on your mind what youre thinking

Is it us, or the fairy dust
Is it years of that life you've been making

Siempre hay tiempo segun el reloj

El mar sube y baja segun el querer de los dos
Track Name: Running
You're running to get started
You're running to get to school
You're running to do some errands
You're running cause it looks cool

You're running to pay that meter
You're running, you're late for work
You're running to make that date you made
Before she runs off for good

All this time
You're running away from you

All this time
It could all be spent on you

You're running, you're late for meetings
You're running to bake that cake
You're running up and down the street
To find an open cafe

You're running to your wedding
You're running your kids to class
You're running your fingers through your hair
Hoping to make it last

All this time
You're running away from you

All this time
Its time you could spend on you
